I've been struggling with porn addiction since I was 12. I never needed to act out in any way, got married, and now have 2 awesome kids and wonderful wife. I've been sober for about 6 months, and I know I can get the rest of my life this way by trusting in God, and following the program at

Candeo costs $47 a month    
"It seems like people could get a lot more for their money by using that money for the transportation costs of going to and from twelve step groups. Maybe Candeo works for some people, but I don't think it would really be worth the cost."

"I haven't given them money, but I like the website, and I signed up for their encouraging emails, and they really do work.

In this addiction recovery world, we have different definitions for different words. To many of us, "acting out" means participating in any way in our addiction, i.e. looking at porn or mb, etc. It isn't exclusive of having sexual contact with another person.

$47 a month huh? Wow. Now that I've been in therapy a year, and doing another program (I have no desire to endorse, but just for the record it is LifeStar, and it is endorsed by LDS Family Services--it isn't for everyone, but bishops across the board will pay for it), if Candeo is a good program, that is cheap. I've had a copay on weekly therapy at $30 per week (that would be between $100 and $185 without insurance), and LifeStar was $800 for the first phase, and then its monthly fees for phases II and III are comparable. $47 is a bargain.

Even though there is an industry to help fight porn and porn addiction, it doesn't lessen the value of the services we may receive. I believe the Spirit has helped me decide where to get help. I receive so much from counseling with my bishop. I receive such incredible help through the LDS Family Services 12 step program, and both of those are free. The Lord and my bishop have helped me find additional resources, and for me they were absolutely necessary. MB alone has been an ingrained way of thinking in my life for 39 years (I started at 6 or 7), and this alone requires professional help, not to mention all of the other issues that go with it. God has performed miracles in my life through a combination of all of these sources of help. For some, 12 step is enough. But please accept the fact that for others, more is also needed.

"For those not familiar with Candeo who may even be skeptical. I'm definitely a believer. It is worth every dollar. It doesn't only teach you how to deal with and overcome addictions but it can help with any negative behavior. I've seen it work with extremely well with too very close individuals. It worked where counselors couldn't."

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
